There are two ways to approach purchasing a first aid kit: Do you want one to stash in your home and vehicle, so you’ll have everything you’ll need to deal with scrapes, bruises, and other minor issues? Or do you plan to pack the first aid kit along with you and your family as you hike, camp, and adventure to playgrounds and parks? So, when it comes to first aid kits, read the fine print! Most commercial first aid kits include a detailed list of what’s inside, so you’ll know what you’re buying. Some kits are better suited for storing in a closet and using for everyday scrapes and bruises around the house. Others are more suited to outdoor trips, hikes in the woods, or weekends at the lake or coast, and it’s always a good idea to add a few specialty items to a first aid kit that might be specific to your family—poison ivy cream, for example, or antihistamines. Here are three other things to think about when buying a first aid kit.
